Love the location, the food. The service is excellent.
It's Monterey, you want great food-check, great service-check, and great views-double check.
Make reservations, but they will take walk-ins, too.
Wonderful experience with great service.
Amazing location, friendly staff and eggs Benedict cooked to perfection.
Service outstanding. Food was delicious,flavorful.
Staff was great. Location was great. Will go again.
Small party in front of us in line was seated immediately despite not having areservation, but our small party had to wait for our table to be ready and we had a reservation. There were shells in my crab Benedict and my second latte was never delivered. The view is beautiful, but overall the rest of the experience was not so great.
Exceptional service, amazing views. Thanks for having us. It was beautiful.
We enjoyed a view of the kelp beds and otter.
The waiter was skillful and friendly.
Every item of food was delicious.
Great experience at this place. Would highly recommend making a reservation in advance since the wait can be about an hour. We stayed at the hotel and it was very convenient to have dinner and then head up to our room. If you are unable to eat at the restaurant I do recommend the in room dining (similar experience). We placed our order for breakfast and everything was wonderful.
Great food! Great view, great service!
Excellent service, came early for our reservation and still got seated very fast. Staff was really friendly and knowledgeable about wine and cocktails. The oysters were fresh and delicious, only con is I wish the dinner entrees had a bit more variety. Would go again!
We LOVED our first visit to Schooners, and cannot wait to come back! The RedBreast cocktail is amazing, the drunken octopus was perfect, the local oysters and the swordfish BLT were delicious, and the restaurant itself was lovely and staffed with a caring, experienced crew of good, friendly people. They surprised my mom for her birthday with a housemade dessert, and our table was right at the edge of the patio, hanging over the kelp forest and providing plenty of views of otters and other gorgeous wildlife. We will definitely come back - it's our new favorite place!
Great food, atmosphere and service! Looking forward to dining there again.
Wonderful atmosphere. Though due to covid directed outdoor seating, accommodations were very comfortable.
Amazing spot right on the water! Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Food was great
Wonderful lunch with a view of the bay! Seafood salad is excellent!
Great food, excellent service , nice view. The inside seating is still closed so you will need reservations for dinner and a light jacket or sweater it gets a little chilly outside at night
I thought the cioppino was bland and it had way more squid then mussels, clams, or fish. My friends swordfish sandwich was mushy! They took it off the bill. The eggs Benedict were good.
Great fish and chips and the seafood trio highly recommend
Breakfast brunch on the deck overlooking the Bay was memorable. Use valet parking of the hotel and validate the ticket.
Lovely breakfast with my young son - he was excited to watch otters while we ate!
Amazing customer service! The experience was great. Marcos was super friendly, we will definitely come back.
Food was amazing and the views were perfection! The service could have been better I felt like the server spent more time with two older gentleman and went above with them. I felt because it was my husband and 1 year old daughter we were brushed to the side. She was nice but didn’t feel as if the same energy was brought to our table.
Impossible to overstate the beauty of the view from Schooners patio, and the table side heaters make 50 degrees feel balmy! Service is friendly and accommodating, and we found our two dining experiences there very enjoyable. Food itself is good- I wouldn’t say amazing, or unique, portions are good sized and cocktails are ok, once again not amazing but certainly good enough to enjoy. I’d go back again, mostly for the view and ambience.
Food and service is very good, however the value has a lot to be desired, just way over priced for what you get
The food and the staff was terrific. There was relatively no wait time. Great atmosphere.
The service was great. The crab and anchovies were fresh but the salad lacked big time, it needed cucumbers, peppers, seasoning, olives and some type of dressing that goes with fish. The lettuce appeared not fresh.
I like Schooners and have been there several times but this time was not great. They couldn't find my reservation. After they seated us, we had to wait a long time for someone to take our orders and for the food to arrive. I think more staff. The staff was scrambling about - too many customers not enough staff. At this time I can't recommend it.
For a luxury hotel, dining options are extremely limited. It appears that they have a dining room inside that they are not using. Rather they have a tent that they heat with less than optimal heating units to accommodate the diners. We luckily were put in the bar region where there are four tables. It was quite noisy, but it wasn’t cold. Our waitress was wonderful. The food was excellent. It was quite frustrating that in order to get a menu for the food and wine options, one had to scan to their phone. Since we did not have our phones with us, they were gracious enough to bring us an iPad to use. Since we are emerging from the Covid pandemic, it is time that this type of hotel get their dining options back up to par including printed menus.
Ciopepino and fish and chips were very good. Service was a little too impersonal. Outside seating was comfortable because of the heaters.
Great view, flavorful food, and good service. Nice place to go for a special occasion, or just to enjoy an afternoon out.
Attractive setting, prompt service, cold spirits, tasty salad, perfectly cooked steak all at a price that wouldn't break the bank.
I’ll give a star to this restaurant and I think it’s too much. The service terrible, we ordered appetizers and came together with the main course, the waitress only apologize and said it was the kitchen’s fault. He never came back to our table. Overpriced. Waitress was not wearing a mask. Great view. We don’t recommend this place.
service was great and the nachos and lemon drops we ordered were delicious!
Beautiful view and great food!
Wonderful view, excellent service, great seafood chowder(and my wife is an expert) and prawn starter. Drinks were gracious and strawberry daiquri recommended.
Despite having reservations, we had to wait for a table. Initially we were told it would be five minutes. It ended up being 25 minutes and we were only seated after I reminded the hostess we were still waiting. Once we were seated (outdoors), we requested a heater, which was brought to us and set up, but never turned on. After realizing there was no heat being emitted, we called a bus boy over who turned it on for us after switching out the propane tank, which took some time. After ordering our food, we didn't see our waiter again until paying our bill, and were assisted instead by other waiters passing our table or the bus boy. The dinner was in celebration of my wife's 40th birthday, which the hostess had acknowledged when we checked in, as I had left a note on our reservation asking if the restaraunt could do anything to make the occasion special for her. However, nothing was ever done after the brief mention by our hostess. Our waiter never acknowledged it was her birthday and nothing ever came of my request for the staff to make it a special occasion for her.
My wife just finished her doctoral program and we went to Monterey bay to have a little getaway to celebrate her accomplishment
